The Powerful

A thought occurred to me about the kind of people who work very hard to acquire more and more power and adulation and status (and this come in a legion of forms):
All they are showing is that they very firmly believe that other people have all the power.
Very simple: why would they need other people to continually grant them power and status if they don't believe that other people are the only ones who can give this or take it away?

It really must be quite a painful life to have such a bottomless lack of self-assurance.
